Coronation of Brion and Anna

Come One and All to the Coronation of Brion and Anna on Saturday, October 1, 2016.  Join us in honoring the service of good King Kenric and gracious Queen Avelina and wishing long life to our glorious new monarchs.  This grand celebration takes place in the Barony of Bergental at the beautiful outdoor site where Crown Tourney was held in November 2015.

The tentative schedule for the day will begin with the Last Court of TRMs Kenric and Avelina sometime after 10 a.m.  followed by the Coronation ceremony.  Sitting in State will take place mid-afternoon.  The First Court of TRMs Brion and Anna is anticipated at 4 p.m.  Updates to the schedule will be posted - please check back for more details.

A sumptuous dayboard will be provided under the direction of Mistress Eleanore MacCarthaigh by Master Aethelhawk Keyfinder and the kingdom's finest kitcheners.  Diverse entertainments will enliven the time between Court and More Court.  Ample space is available for merchants to ply their wares.  Lists will be open on the Field of Honor for heavy weapons, fencing and youth combat.

Heraldic display is most pleasing to the Crowns of the East.  You are heartily encouraged to bring your pavilions and canopies to line the tourney field, your pennons and banners to fly in the breeze, and your best heraldic garb to shine nobly forth!  (Advance reservations should include pavilion sizes for reserved space on the inner perimeter.) ***Please bring your folding chairs!***

There is no feast planned for the evening.  The event closes upon conclusion of the final Court business.  Please check back for more schedule details, menu, activities and more.
